Vista 32bit

Thanks for all the comments. I check the Registry items the program wants to clear before I execute them.

You are right on target. Sysinternals is good.

Windows 7 does an excellent job of setting itself up to make the best of your particular system out of the box.

I do use CCleaner for tidying up after un-installs and other major changes but only for those that I know exactly what needs to be done

Systems I work with often need to be available 24/7 when I may not be around to fix them straight away. I've found that the systems that are not tweaked beyond what has to be done tend to operate much more reliably
+1 Spot on, Nigel.

Do not use tune up utilities with Win 7. Win 7 is not XP and the old XP knowledge does not apply.

Well I find that I only need to use CCleaner on Win7 as together they seem to sort the lot out

Ditto; and I rarely use the registry cleaner. I use it only when I have installed something and delete only the keys that I know pertained to the uninstalled software.
